    I will start a new thread, with pics, etc. It seems like I was just propping the Kuota up in the living room to take a picture of it for TE. But, that was in 2006.

    I saw your post about 650 wheels. The Silque does not have them, but the geometry of the bike, as you said will be fine with the 700s. My 5200 did have 650s. I never noticed any difference in my...

    Mine is red with black /white accents. Still "common" bike colors, and not girly at all. I hate girly looking bikes, no offense to anyone who likes pink! My mom refused to dress me in pink as a...

    Yes, that's it. The frame is kind of not in great shape, DH clear coated it last week. Lots of dings and I'm not so great at keeping it clean. Though, it looks new-ish and it's been maintained well....

    I am leaning toward selling it. I don't need 3 road bikes. I won't get much, but at this point who cares? I'd rather save up for that mixte/town bike for when we move off of the hill.

    Just got back from my fitting, about 45 minutes ago. I was there for over 2 hours. Good, but exhausting. They were surprised I rode there :eek:. It's 3.5 miles, and I had to be in my bike clothes,...

    I'll know more Thursday, but the turn around time is about 2-3 wks if it's not custom painted.
    Yeah, they get paid well.

    The original choice was 850.00 extra. We were willing to go for 400.00 extra, but in the end, decided not to.
    It's 65 degrees out and I'm at work! I need to ride my bike.

    After a sleepless night, I decided on the one that has a similar look, that doesn't cost extra. Has a red fade to purple stripe, red lettering on a black frame. Almost got a totally black one.

    It was black, with white lettering, white stem and something else, red, fading to white stripe on the top tube. There's some other options that are similar. I wrote a nasty email to my DH and said I...

    Just got an email that the paint I chose is extra. Back to the drawing board. Definitely don't want white. I am a dirt magnet. Will settle this much later tonight.

    That web site was making both me and DH nuts.
    Yes, I am buying the Silque. The shop owner got out the "big book" from Trek for the last 2 years, to find the geometry of the Madone 3.1 in a 47 and...

    Hi Trisk!

    Oy, this stuff makes my head spin. I would say my Kuota is twitchy; so if that's the same as unresponsive, that's what it is. The trail stuff is a little harder for me to get!

    Yup, I have the Kuota and the Guru. I also am not into paint jobs, decals, or other cosmetic looking stuff. I just want good components on a bike that fits.

    Yes, the Silque has the inserts. The Domaine is too upright for my taste.
